The Beauty about cars is that they are constantly evolving, now more than ever. Every time you get comfortable, every time you think you know everything about a certain car, part, mechanics or system it changes the next day. It's always improving itself. That's what I truly love about the automotive business, it keeps you on your toes! I started with Pep Boys about four years ago, almost to the date actually. I started as a Service Adviser in Brooklyn. With very little experience and a love for cars. I learned everything there and was geared up to go! Down the line there was a set of stores opening up and was approached to be a manager for one. Seeing it as a step in my Pep Boys career I took it. I worked as manager there for about a year and a half before I was approached for the Speed Shop manager position. Ecstatically and eagerly I took it! A new opportunity opened up where it was less focused on maintaining your car, but rather upgrading your car. It was different almost all together! I'm still dealing with cars but in an entirely different aspect. I love it, even now there is still so much to learn, and always will be! I got to say that's what interests me the most, the almost limitless possibilities.
With this new position I've been getting to know a lot of great people and their cars. There are plenty of enthusiasts in my neighborhood. Whether it be classic cars, hot rods, street rods, tuners and even drag racers. I've seen vehicles from the 30's completely restored all up to the most recent vehicle all supped up. There is no division just a love for cars. Ever since I got this position I've been nothing but welcomed into this community. I have fully adapted Pep Boys policy "taking care of people and their cars" because honestly it's the truth. The car doesn't buy anything, the customer does.
